Volleyball player Arunima Sinha, whose left leg had to be amputated after she was pushed off a moving train last week, is responding well to treatment at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences' (Aiims) Trauma Centre, where she was admitted on Monday.

"She is stable. I saw her in the morning, she had a sound sleep on Tuesday night and was feeling better," Said Dr MC Misra, chief of Trauma Centre. The doctors are waiting for her culture reports before deciding to go ahead with the surgeries.

Sinha was pushed out of the general compartment of the Padmawati Express near Bareilly on April 11 while resisting a chain-snatching attempt. Her left leg was crushed when it came under the wheels of a passing train, and had to be amputated.
